Went with a tour party of 40, and horrified to find another two tour parties there! Lovely location, and a good background talk first. The archaeology museum is very well done, to a professional standard - excellent in fact. Seated on a verandah for a disappointing "tasting". Just 4 wines presented, a jokey presenting lady, and little background given,, and... More

This was the first wine farm in our itinerary and we arrived around 10 - we were almost the first there. Their 9 wine tasting is just 30 rands, so we did that and ordered a cheese plate. All wines were decent, but we were especially impressed by their dessert and port wines and bought a bottle of each. Unfortunately,... More

It is always a pleasure to go to this establishment and to introduce people to it. I have been there many times and have never been disappointed. The food is good, the wine is special, the service is unique and the place is beautiful. I had satisfied clients when we left.

We went on a lovely Friday afternoon. Perfect blue skies and a nice bit of sunshine. It is very nice sitting on the lawns, just taking in the surroundings and having a chat. The wine is good and the staff were very informative and very friendly.

We visited Solms Delta for the museum rather than the wine. The idea is great, the experience is less so. Set in a dimly lit room the display comprises a lot of posters which were difficult to read because of the pale fonts. One or two emboldened sentences were possible but, looking up from a wheelchair added to the reading... More

Our wine club visited the farm. Our guide Johan met us on a cold and wet day but soon warmed up to the group with his stories and knowledge of the farm and area in general. Our tour was done in a minibus with Johan driving and pointing out different points of interest. Afterwards he took us through the museum.... More

We were referred here from another nearby wine farm. The museum is very interesting. But our highlight was our wine tasting facilitator - Susanna. She was very sweet, extremely friendly. We tasted 6 wines and had a good laugh each time with her. The gentleman who served me at the till was just as friendly. Their wines are definitely worth... More

We were lucky to get a table in this idyllic location on a Sunday lunchtime, having not booked In advance during the peak of tourist season. However, the staff were over-run with tables (especially lots of large groups), so service was extremely slow, our food arrived cold, and to my disappointment, the same (lamb based) sauce had been used on...

We loved jazz in the bottle and sung by Mercia... she had stories that made the wine even more delicious! Thanks to our driver and guide Marlene for a wonderful day in the winelands!
